SIx Pryor Middle School students were recently featured in Get the Coast magazine for being elected to participate as “Sophisticated Educators” for the day, an initiative that allowed them to step into leadership roles at the school. The idea for the leadership day came from long-time Okaloosa educator, Ms. Gloria Parish, who has been at Pryor Middle School for 27 years.
The day began with the students greeting their peers as they got off the bus, a responsibility typically reserved for school staff. They then took on the role of hall monitors and greeted their fellow students and staff throughout the day. The students dressed up in a mix of shirts and ties, slacks, and dresses, showing the entire school that they were serious about their leadership roles.
The eighth-grade students selected to participate in the “Sophisticated Educators” day were Destiny Cortez, Fernando Martinez, Oluwapelumi Adeniji, Anoviyah Wilson, Jamaarie Alcide, and Andre Bridgewater.
